Tonight one of my favorite bands of all time, The Raincoats, is playing a rare reunion show here in Portland. In fact, on this current tour the only other cities they are performing in are Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.
SUCK IT SEATTLE!
To get myself pumped up I poked around youtube for live videos, but instead stumbled upon this little gem of an interview with Gina Birch about a documentary she is making about the band. The Raincoats: Fairytales sounds like it is near completion and I’m super stoked about seeing it.
I have to say though that the live performances interspersed in this interview seem a little….lackluster. Like they are phoning it in with no real energy. Of course, this is unfortunately common in how reunion tours play out.
All fingers here at Gaycondo are crossed though with the hopes that my premonition is incorrect! Come down to the Holocene with tonight to find out!
